Overview



Nestled peacefully in the magnificent Waterberg Mountain Range in the Limpopo Province, Thandeka Lodge is the ideal getaway where the weary traveler can relax and revel in the exquisite natural beauty of the bushveld savannah and its rich wildlife heritage.

Come and experience spectacular vistas and this majestic wilderness in the luxury that is Thandeka Lodge. Only two short hours drive from Johannesburg, this privately owned and run reserve is a must for everyone, from the bushveld connoisseur to the romantic at heart.

Thandeka is a malaria-free reserve that homes an abundant variety of wildlife, with the architecture designed around promoting close encounters with the unspoiled bush. The sleek main building rings of an era of colonialism with a contemporary twist, while the interior is exquisitely decorated in a colonial-contemporary style.

Accommodation takes the form of 20 opulent en-suite tents, each one decorated with unique touches, hidden in the splendor of the bush. Thandeka Lodge is situated 35km from Bela Bela, (formerly Warmbaths), in the Waterberg district of the Limpopo Province and is a private reserve measuring approximately 1000 hectares.

The Waterberg offers a mosaic of exceptional scenic landscape, a fascinating cultural heritage, an abundance of wildlife species and many nature-based tourism opportunities. Vaalwater is the central village of the Waterberg area, the heart of the Bushveld region.

The Waterberg has been described as South Africa's best-kept secret. Its rugged beauty, together with its diversity in plant and animal life, has led to the development of several exciting eco-tourism projects such as the biosphere reserve, the Waterberg Nature Conservancy - the amalgamation of conservation areas in order to protect more than 150 000 hectares of the Waterberg-habitat. The Waterberg-range, incorporating many rivers, streams and swamps, stretches for 150 kilometres in a long arc from Thabazimbi in the West, Nylstroom in the centre to Potgietersrus in the east. Apart from the spectacular scenery of the mountains themselves, there are many game sanctuaries, nature reserves and farms. The 75 mammal species include big game such as elephant, lion, white and black rhino, hippo, leopard and buffalo. African python and the Nile crocodile are also resident, and it is a birdwatchers' paradise with more than 300 bird species.

Thandeka Lodge boasts four of the Big Five, namely; buffalo, rhino, leopard and lions. Elephant viewing, interaction and elephant-back safaris can be experienced nearby.
